Hemerocallis 'Marque Moon'

Common Name: Daylily

 “Marque” is another word for a model by which others should follow suit. ‘Marque Moon’ sets the new standard for white daylilies as its form is greatly improved.

Extravagant ruffling unlike any other lends a fancy, elegant look to the blossoms. The large 5-5.5", fragrant, cream colored blossoms have a yellow throat that radiates softly out onto the petals. This yellow coloring is repeated on the picotee edge around each rounded petal. On cloudy days, you can detect a hint of peach color in the flower, and on sunny days you can see the diamond dust sparkling on the petals.

This is a heavily budded daylily that can produce an incredible 40 buds per scape. It forms a compact clump of narrow, arching foliage topped with large flowers in midsummer.

Dormant tetraploid.

This is considered a premium daylily, which means that it has been selected as highly performing plant with exceptional bloom performance, substantive, vibrantly colored flowers, complete winter hardiness in northern zones, and a vigorous habit.

Awards: Ranked high in the Popularity Poll, JC '86, HM '89, AM '92

Daylilies can survive many harsh conditions that other plants cannot such as: polluted city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils, near pavement that is salted in winter, and under Black Walnut trees (not affected by juglone).
